The Skinny: Bay Area punk rock group Heartsounds will release their third full-length album, Internal Eyes, on October 18th via Flix Records (Cargo/Plastic Head Distribution) in Europe. In anticipation for the upcoming release Heartsounds has premiered a new song titled “The World Up There” which you can listen to just above!
Internal Eyes was recorded, mixed, and, mastered at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, CA in June and July of 2013. The band once again called on producer/engineer Zack Ohren for the production of the album, resulting in what can only be considered the most sonically impressive and aesthetically pleasing Heartsounds record to date. While 2009’s Until We Surrender marked the band’s debut effort, tracked solely between guitarist/vocalists Ben Murray and Laura Nichol, Internal Eyes is the second full-length album (after last year’s Drifter) to include drummer Trey Derbes as a crucial songwriting partner to the group. Internal Eyes also marks the first album with bassist Bobby Taul, who helps in achieving a more solidified and tighter-knit rhythm section than ever before.
